Re: Question Concerning Lingva Latina: Capitvlvm Octavvm

Lingva Latina: Chapter Eight — Line 45 When Medus and Lydia see the shop, and Albinus greets them, why does it use the masculine 'eos' (Albinus eos salutat)?

Re: Key to Greek Ollendorff. Please help!

How would Greek Ollendorf be as a gentle introduction toward reading Aristotle? I'm guessing that both are in Attic, but Greek is definitely not an area in which I have much useful knowledge.
